The show is a modernized TV take on William Peter Blatty’s 1971 book and the film written by Jeremy Slater and directed by Rupert Wyatt. If picked up, the series will be a  serialized psychological thriller following two  men tackling one family’s case of demonic possession. Davis has been cast as Angela Rance. The character is described as:

“regal and proud, but weighed down by stress. She does everything she can to stay positive and keep her faith even though her family is currently struggling. She can’t help but think if perhaps her nightmares about a demon are a sign of what’s wrong.”

The series will be executive produced by Jeremy Slater, Rupert Wyatt, Rolin Jones, James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall. 20th Century Fox Television and Morgan Creek Productions are producing. Stay tuned, kids…
